iPod shuffle meme

Since I've managed to accrue 365 songs into my iPod, here is one of those iPod memes.  I have to answer each question with whatever song title comes up next in shuffle mode.  Half the questions are more fitted for teens than 40-somethings, but I figure a random shuffle quiz fits a random mode.

1. How does the world see me?
"No Air" Glee: The Music Volume 1.
How much I love this song: I don't know this song at all.  I bought this CD for the kids.

2. How is my life going?
Welcome Back.  Bengt Washburn, Earthquake in a Coffee Shop.  Comedy album
i LOVE this track.  "This is Janet."  Ha!

3. What do my friends really think of me?
Black Horse & The Cherry Tree.  KT Tunstall, Eye to the Telescope.
One of those ex-favorite songs I'll always love, but not so much.
"No, no, you're not the one for me."

4. Do people secretly admire me?
Funny, not one of my favorite tracks of his though.
Boycotting Disney.  Bengt Washburn, Earthquake in a Coffee Shop.

5. How Can I make myself happy?
How much I love this song: yes, excellent.
I Just Dropped In (To See What My Condition was In). (soundtrack: Big Lebowski)

6. What Should I do with my life?
How much I love this song: totally unfamiliar with it.
Stoppin' the Love KT Tunstall, Eye to the Telescope
another one I don't know.

so you think it's funny
that you've been calling all the time
and I don't know why I wouldn't follow.
You got me looking up
Even when I'm looking down
You've got me crawling out of my skin.
I am underneath this big ole sky
Stoppin the loving getting in.

7. Will I ever have children? (Ha, I have more children than you.)
How much I love this song.  So Much.
Makes Me Wonder.  Maroon 5

I still don't have a reason
And you don't have the time.

8. How Will I Be Remembered?
How much I love this song:  Also so much.
If I Never See Your Face Again.  Maroon 5.

9. What is good advice for me?
Back to You, John Mayer, Room for Squares
How much I love this song--came with the album.  It's pleasant but I don't know it well.

"I can't turn and walk away."

10. What is my signature dance song?
Old Weird Harold, Best of Bill Cosby
How much I love this song: I bought this album recently, mostly for my son.  But when I listened to it with him, I had to explain to explain so much cultural context to him.  But I thought it was very funny.

But seriously, this is my dance song?  There's no music.

11. What do I think my current theme song is?
Copeland, Billy the Kid, The Ope... (track 20)
How much I love it.  Love it.  Love Copeland.  Love Copeland dances.  Love all that grand, grand sound.  And it's short.

12. What do my friends think my current theme song is?
Growin' Up Mormon.  Bengt Washburn, Earthquake in a Coffee Shop.
Love this track.  I can quote long passages of it.

13. What song will play at my funeral?
Obvious.  Jane's Addiction.  Ritual De Lo Habitual
This is one of the songs I just *love* the sound of.  But don't play it at my funeral  "Digging something up" and "You don't know me."  That would be rude to anyone who would go to anyone's funeral.

14. What kind of men do I like?
Defying Gravity, Glee: The Music Volume 1.
Okay, that makes no sense as an answer.

15. What is my day going to be like? (although it's close to midnight and I'm about to turn in.  If it were morning, I wouldn't be doing such a silly thing as an iPod shuffle.)
Go All The Way (Into The Twilight) Perry Farrell.
Everyday, we're going all the way.  Tonight lighting strikes.
how much do I like this song: I am a Perry Farrell fan.  This song is very commercial, so commercial is it really Perry Farrell, our Perry Farrell?  But its placement in the movie as a soundtracks song, at the high school prom, was just right.  When I hear it I think of little twinkly lights and happy kids.

16. And what came next on shuffle:
High Flying, Adored.  Evita Original Cast album.
how much I love it?  I love it.  We need a question here so I can include it.  And Mandy can sing (pitter-pat my heart)  Make this the answer to all the above questions.
